Let’s Learn About Our Amazing Bodies

Preschoolers are naturally curious about how their bodies work (“Where does my food go when I eat? What are muscles? Why do I have bones?”) and these new hands-on learning materials will provide a fun, exciting way to get those questions answered. Students will gain an understanding of (and accurate terminology for) digestion, the cardio-vascular system, the brain and skeletal system. They’ll also learn simple, meaningful ways to keep their bodies healthy – such as the value of exercise and good food choices. Interactive body puzzles and take-apart models, kits for exploring the five senses, human X-rays, games, even model skeletons – will teach the functions of the major organs and systems. Clear, simple explanations and hands-on materials, guided by their teachers, will have students understanding how wondrous they really are, and the importance of taking care of their amazing bodies.
